Selena Gomez is going straight to the leadership of Facebook and Instagram to combat the hate and racism issues on social media platforms. The 28-year-old singer and actress shared a private message she had written to Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg on her own Instagram Stories. “Facebook and Instagram are being used to spread hate, misinformation, racism, and bigotry,” Selena wrote in the message. “I am calling you both to HELP STOP THIS.”

 

She added, “Please shut down groups and users focused on spreading hate speech violence and misinformation. Our future depends on it.” Selena also stressed the importance of acting now, given the election is less than 50 days away “We cannot afford to have misinformation about voting,” she continued. 

 

“There has to be fact-checking and accountability. Hope to hear back from you ASAP.” Selena is joining the #StopHateForProfit protest alongside other stars like Kim Kardashian, Amy Schumer, Katy Perry and more. 

 

In case you missed it, Kim Kardashian who participated in the campaign earlier in the week, froze her Facebook and Instagram for 24 hours, and informed her fans: “I love that I can connect directly with you through Instagram and Facebook, but I can’t sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to allow the spreading of hate, propaganda and misinformation – created by groups to sow division and split America apart – only to take steps after people are killed,” Kim explained on Instagram.

I am not aware of the Hate messages probably that you were referring.... But... When a presidential candid make an accusation against another candid - is n't a hate? He has campaign money, power and he does it.... If somebody spreads hate through facebook account, are the people fool to buy it? Why you want to deny a medium for someone which is available for everyone? First of all what is the origin of these hates?

I agree Selena, personally I feel that the climate and tolerance for hate is unacceptable and sometimes there are unlikely perpetrators like reverse racism ethnic groups who hate whites etc. Personally I dont have issues of race, I'm black mixed Mestizo and Mulatto. My family is all different races Blacks, Whites, Latin cultures, Asians, Natives etc. Theres somewhat of a ethnic divide in some correctional facility but I've always maintained a decent rapport with everybody. I've experienced believe it or not gay people hating on me for being straight only attracted to feminine beauty and anatomical form! Theyve talked in reverse accusing me of being what they were, told lies and tried to ostracize me out the hustle on certain yards because I was unwilling to let them suck on me, and would drop relentless innuendos and even fabricate lies which I considered slanderous. How ridiculous is that after shutting them Down numerous times subtly like , cancel that theory, saying I just like women, or NOpE, or never that. Or saying no Sirs only hers. Due to the disrespect of continual unwanted pursuit I then sometimes became disrespectful to finally get my point across. Yours Truly, Andre Tyrone Johnson aka Baldhead Dre. Hate cycle is broken by respect for differences!
